Given his 30-plus years in the spotlight of country music, Tritt is seemingly trying to get back to his Southern roots with his new album Country Chapel, which is set to release on September 15. Country Chapel is Tritt’s debut gospel album and his latest album since Set In Stone back in 2021. The project was produced by Dave Cobb.

Country Chapel intends to take “listeners on a nostalgic journey back to his childhood roots … with authentic renditions and powerful testimonies of redemption,” per a press release. The roots the release speaks of are Tritt’s childhood years spent in his hometown of Marietta, Georgia. During these years, Tritt fell in love with music after singing in his church choir and, subsequently, received his first guitar at 8 years old.

Tritt is often considered part of the iconic “Class of ’89,” alongside Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson, Clint Black, and Mary Chapin Carter. Songs that helped Tritt join this highly decorated class are “Help Me Hold On,” “Anymore,” “Can I Trust You with My Heart,” “Foolish Pride,” “Best of Intentions,” and “I’m Gonna Be Somebody.”
